Campbell is trying to make his way back from a foot injury. Kindley, an all-conference candidate at left guard, suffered what appeared to be a significant sprain to his left ankle early in the Notre Dame game and has not been back on the field since.
Smart had indicated in his press briefing earlier in the day Monday that he expects to have both players back in time to face the Vols.
“Tyson is still limited a little bit,” Smart said. “Hoping to get him back before the end of the week. He's recovering quickly. ... Solomon, we expect to be able to go out today and do some work. We think he's going to be cleared to play.”
The Bulldogs have fared well in the absence of both players. Junior college transfer D.J. Daniel started against Notre Dame and had five tackles, a tackle for loss and pass break-up. Junior Justin Shaffer replaced Kindley and played the rest of the way in the 23-17 victory over the No. 7 Irish.
